To My Big Sister
on the occasion of her birthday
Women are not always able to have good friendships with other women. But I believe, with all my heart, that God didn't just make us sisters, He made us best friends -- and I am able to have healthy and deep friendships with other women because of my friendship and connection with you.
You are the best friend God gave to me before I was even born -- and that has never changed. I'm sorry I tried to bonk you on the head that one time. And ya know, pretended you hit me... then cried. I'm also sorry for not cleaning the bedroom. Thanks for taking up the slack... EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. *BTW: If you have a few hours, my bedroom is missing a floor...* You have always laughed with me - not at me - and with your contagious giggle, and quick wit, you've made me snort milk out of my nose more times than I can remember (I do remember that one time - at the library -- and almost getting kicked out) You are a powerhouse of kindness, a wealth of joy, and a bank that freely shares God's love... with no expectation of being "paid back" You are beautiful. Yeah, I know -- people think we are weirdos. They are probably right. But I'd rather be a weirdo sister with you than a weirdo without you. *Attaboy, Luther!* I have no doubt you got that reference. We share brain waves, ya know. That being the case, and also the fact that yesterday was your birthday, you also know that I'm gonna give you the "I'm the favorite" crown for the day. Happy Birthday! (I'll need that crown back on Monday.)
